I've read this food critic's memoir twice. I'm not a foodie, but no matter! This book is such fun, and Ruch Reichl could probably write about paint drying and manage to make it interesting. Highly recommended if you need something enjoyable and easy to read.


Garlic and Sapphires is Ruth Reichl's riotous account of the many disguises she employs to dine anonymously. There is her stint as Molly Hollis, a frumpy blond with manicured nails and an off-beige Armani suit that Ruth takes on when reviewing Le Cirque. The result: her famous double review of the restaurant: first she ate there as Molly; and then as she was coddled and pampered on her visit there as Ruth, New York Times food critic.
